When a little boy goes to his first swimming lesson, he is nervous. The water is deep, and he doesn't float. After water goes up his nose, he gets out of the pool. It's too scary. The little boy's teacher assures him that it's okay to be scared. And when they face his fear together, he discovers swimming is fun!

The Dealing with Feelings series of early readers is designed to give voice to what's brewing inside. Through short, simple text and repetitive observational phrases, children will learn to name their emotions as they learn to read.

Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories, for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
